Dealers’ Registration

Animazement Dealers’ Room is done through a selection process and booth selections will be made by Animazement. Dealers will be selected through the following process:

  • An ‘Open Registration’ application will be open for the month of October 2018 (October 1st, 12:00AM EST – October 31st, 11:59PM EST). Please fill out the application and be sure to give as much information as possible. Wait list Applications will be opened after this date –  any applications received after the ‘Open Registration’ period will be reviewed by staff before being placed on a wait list. 
    • This application will include an order preference for booth locations. PLEASE NOTE: We will try to accommodate preferences as much as possible, however this does NOT guarantee you will receive your booth preferences.
    • A downloadable PDF of the dealers room map with pricing, will be made available soon.
  • Applications will then be reviewed by Animazement staff. The selection order will be randomly generated from a list of approved applications.
  • Animazement will notify dealers of their decision. Emails will be sent out within the first couple weeks of December. Once booth placements and reservations have been confirmed, Dealer Room Contracts and payments will be sent out.
  • Dealers will have until noon (EST), January 15th, 2019 to confirm their payment and fill out contracts. Failure to do so can result in the registration being canceled and the booth(s) will be made available to others.
  • Those not selected will be placed on a wait list and notified if any spots become available.

*Please note: You may not purchase booths under your name for other dealers or transfer your booth to another dealer. Failure to comply may result in removal of the dealer from the convention, forfeiting all fees, as well as banishment from future Animazement events. If you wish to transfer booths, please contact Animazement at dealers@animazement.org.

Each booth space is a 10’x10’ square (100 square feet) with an 8’ back drape and 3’ side divider drapes. One 8’ table with cover and skirt and two chairs are provided. For additional tables and chairs, contact Southern Exhibition Services at 800-882-7469 or info@southern-exhibition.com.
Dealers are welcome to bring their own furniture and fixtures, provided that they conform to safety standards and do not interfere with neighboring booths.

Animazement will assign multiple booths together to form a single space. Animazement will contact you as soon as possible if we are not able to accommodate your space request.

You will receive two (2) dealers’ badges for each booth you reserve. Additional badges may be purchased through the Eventbrite dealer registration website. Dealer badges are not transferrable. Each badge will list your company name.
Prior to Animazement, the Dealers’ Liaison will contact each Dealer with unloading instructions, including a time window for unloading and parking. In general, unloading and setup will occur starting after lunch on Thursday until 9:00 p.m. and resume Friday morning prior to the room’s opening.

To manage traffic at the convention center dock, dealer arrival will be staggered throughout the day on Thursday. First, dealers will unload and then park outside the dock. Then booth setup can begin.

Animazement and the RCC have a limited number of dollies and carts to provide with unloading and loading. Dealers are encouraged to bring their own.

The Raleigh Convention Center provides electrical services, phones, wired and wireless internet services, and more. Visit http://www.raleighconvention.com/exhibitors/order-forms to download an order form and instructions.
Refund requests can be made via Eventbrite, email, or phone call. The amount refunded depends upon the date of the request as indicated in the chart below. Animazement reserves the sole right to determine the disposition of canceled booths. Dealer booths may not be resold, transferred, sub-let or assigned by the Dealer.

Animazement strongly supports and enforces an anti-piracy policy for its Dealers’ Room. Ultimately, each dealer is responsible for merchandise authenticity and legal sale.

Our goal is to reduce piracy that hurts the anime industry (including pirated/bootleg DVDs, fan-subs, and unlicensed merchandise). Animazement does not allow the staging, presentation, or sale of items that infringe upon the intellectual property of another party. As Animazement staffs are not always capable of spotting bootleg items, we need your help to protect the integrity of the industry and the reputation of our convention.

The dealer is responsible for verifying the authenticity of all goods sold at the booth. Items should display copyright or trademark information of some form (e.g., written text, sticker, and or seal) when appropriate. Animazement staff (Dealers’ Liaison, Assistant Directors, and Director) holds the final determination as to whether an item is considered to be pirated.

TRADEMARK INFRINDGEMENT: The use of trademarks without permission of the license holder is a violation of federal law. Prior to applying marks to merchandise, dealers are encouraged to verify allowed usage by searching the database of the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Please note industry representatives will be present. They may also deem certain items in violation of their license and ask you to remove the items. Dealer compliance is required.

Each day prior to opening to attendees, Animazement staff will tour the dealers’ room. Dealers will be asked to remove any questionable items immediately. This is non-negotiable. Failure to comply may result in removal from the dealers’ room without reimbursement.

The first violation of this policy will come with a warning, at which time the Dealer will be asked to remove the offending merchandise. Failure to comply (a second violation) is cause for immediate removal of the Dealer from the convention, forfeiting all fees.
